Created 50.4 acres of self-sustaining emergent and forested wetlands in the Clinton River Watershed. The wetlands are located in a highly developed (urban and agricultural) watershed directly adjacent to the Ray-Lenox Drain (a state-regulated stream) and an adjacent tributary. During flood events, the wetlands serve to capture and store floodwaters reducing downstream flooding and reducing peak flows in this highly developed watershed. In addition, the wetlands serve as a natural vegetated buffer to the stream serving to reduce nutrients and sediments. The wetland also provides critical habitat for a variety of wildlife and serves as a resting area for migratory birds utilizing the Great Lakes Flyway, with the shoreline of Lake St. Clair less than 10 miles from the wetland.
